15 ¶Thou sshalt also take one ram; and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands upon the head of the ram.

24 And thou shalt gput all in the hands of Aaron, and in the hands of his sons; and shalt 5wave them for a wave offering before the LORD.

34 And tif ought of the flesh of the consecrations, or of the bread, remain unto the morning, then uthou shalt burn the remainder with fire: it shall not be eaten, because it is holy.
35 And thus shalt thou do unto Aaron, and to his sons, according to all things which I have commanded thee: vseven days shalt thou consecrate them.
